Lets talk about living a lie..

Before this blog thing goes any further
 I feel like I need to come clean about something..
I post a lot of photos of my nail polish.
I LOVE painted nails!
 a couple of years ago I stumbled across a super nail trick
and I have never looked back.
Its called Top Coat.
It changed my life.
I never ever paint my nails without applying a top coat.
It makes your nail polish last so so so much longer
+ stay shiny!

^ For years this was my go to top coat
Extra life no chip by Revlon,
 I picked it up on a whim at Lawtons.
Not to toot my own horn here...
 but I get compliments on my nails constantly!
Normally from cashiers, they always ask if I'm wearing Shellac.
I reply with a "nope, I just always apply a top coat!"
*You've got to share the knowledge*

Recently when I was in NS for Christmas I realized I forgot my
Revlon top coat in NL.
(I normally carry it in my purse, I don' t go anywhere without it!)
While out I grabbed a bottle of Essie Top coat 'good to go'.
 The fast drying part on the Essie bottle sold me.
I really really really like how fast it drys,
I am short on time these days and its been very convenient.
I don't think the Essie is quite as long lasting as the Revlon
but its a really good alternative for a mom on the go.

If you take the time to paint your nails
take the time to top coat
you wont regret it!


  1. I too always add a top coat... otherwise what's the point?? Without a top coat my nails are chipped within minutes!

  2. Wow! Those results are really good for polish! Why have I never used top coat?! Need to get some ASAP! I used to sell jamberry and cashiers ALWAYS asked about my nails--what is it with cashiers and fingers?! ;)

  3. I always admire people with nicely painted nails. I have never gotten into it and want to. I am good with my right side, because I am left handed. I cannot for the life of me figure out a way to make me left hand look just as nice. I love the bright colors you choose for your nails!

  4. A good top coat is essential! I am a nail biter so mine never stay looking good for long, but for pedicures I get great results with a top coat. I've used a bunch but I don't think I've tried these...

  5. Yes yes yes! I haven't tried the Essie brand yet, but will definitely pick it up next time I'm at the store. Thanks for sharing!

  6. That is really awesome, I always use top coat as well, but they still don't generally last as long as yours do! I will have to try the Revlon brand, thanks for the tip!

  7. I am bad at the whole top coat thing. I slap on the polish and go. Two days later, I'm looking at my nails in disdain. I'll try these out!

  8. I am always on the look out for a good top coat! Thanks!
